xstinitable

This FTOOL is written in C. It generates an initial FITS file (xstinitable.fits) with the appropriate PRIMARY and PARAMETERS extension from the atables and mtable file are build. It also generates a text file (xstinitable.lis) which contains a complete XSTAR calling command on each line. This file is processed by the XSTAR2XSPEC Perl script

Examples of changes in XSTAR that would require changes in this FTOOL (just meant as a sample, not necessarily an exhaustive list).

  1. Changing the number of physical parameters in XSTAR.

  2. Changing or altering the control parameters in XSTAR.
